Maybe it was because
the room was empty
that I walked
toward the patio doors.

Taken by the view,
walking onto the patio
knowing if only for a
short time,

I had to experience 
many patio moments as possible —
sunsets, shadows on the mountains
and starry nights.

Moments have now been many
most without the women
whose view is but
a shifting glance.

On many a night
my heart tears
when the olives fall
and the desert nights chill,

seeking cover
warmth of fire
watching the flames
with a glass of Maker’s,

wrestling with the darkness,
not of the night but the spirit
of an inward monitor 
on love and death.
